35 Hudson Yards (also Tower E or Equinox Tower[2]) is a mixed-use building currently approved for construction in Manhattan's West Side and is slated to be composed of apartment units and a hotel. Located near Hell's Kitchen, Chelsea, and the Penn Station area, the building is a part of the Hudson Yards project, a plan to redevelop the Metropolitan Transportation Authority's West Side Yards.[3][4][5][6][7]

History[edit]

The project was presented to the public for the first time in summer 2011. The tower is a part of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Project, and is located at 11th Avenue and West 30th Street.[8][9] The building design was changed from a cylindrical to a rectangular prismic shape in December 2013.[10]

The tower is designed as a residential and a hotel tower.[11] 35 Hudson Yards will contain 11 floors that will be dedicated to hotel space upon completion. Additionally, a sky lobby, a ballroom and a spa are envisioned as amenities for the building.[9][12] A big Grand Plaza is planned to be located at the foot of the tower.

The construction of 35 Hudson Yards is scheduled to begin by 2015 and be completed in 2018.[8][9] A building permit application was filed in January 2015.[13]

Architecture and design[edit]

The building was designed by David Childs, of the architectural firm SOM. Originally featured as a 900-foot (270 m) tower with setbacks at various intervals, a redesign was revealed in early December 2013 to feature a cylindrical "tube." According to sources, the new redesign will increase the height of the tower to about 1,009 feet (308 m).[14][13]

The building will feature a 80-foot (24 m) observation deck that juts into the air.[2]

As of January 2015, the first floor is the building's lobby. Retail would be on levels 2, 4, and 5. There will be six floors of office space starting from level 8. The hotel will go from levels 19 to 19. There will be 20 rooms per floor, except for on the 27th floor, where there is to be 17. There will also be 135 condominium apartments.[13]
